A few of you may remember me from various WW events, but I really mostly coach Olympic Sprint canoe/kayak.
Anyway - we have a new (and properly socially distant) canoe program this year for juniors, coached by Youri Balan. We are urgently looking for a handful of T-handled *straight shaft* paddles (50-60" or there abouts) that we could borrow for the summer (or at least until our Grey Owl order arrives). They don't need to be perfect, but servicable would be good. We can pick up from anywhere in the metro.
If you have anything that might work, please reach out. If you aren't familiar with high kneel canoe, these boats are 17' long, and around 14" wide. They are meant to go fast in a straight line - if you can keep them right side up. We'll be out on Phalen in the evenings starting tonight!
